Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
To fully understand the difference between breast implantation with silicone breast implants and breast augmentation with fat transfer to the breasts, it is important to read the section on breast implantation. There are many ways to augment or enlarge the breasts. By far the most common way is to place silicone or saline breast implants (breast implantation, breast augmentation). However, fat can be transferred from other areas, such as the waist or abdomen, to the breasts for breast enlargement or breast augmentation. Since fat is the patient’s own “natural” tissue, fat transfer to the breast has been termed “Natural Breast Augmentation” or “Natural Breast Implantation”.
